LITTLE FARMERS CLUB

Little Farmers Club is back!!!! After a long few months we are so pleased to announce the return of Little Farmers Club from Wednesday 9th September 2020. With a new private classroom facility to aid social distancing, additional hand washing facilities, and several onsite changes, we are confident that the return of the club will be safe for all.
Little Farmers is a weekly group for children aged 2-4 years which aims to develop their early learning skills in a hands-on environment. The sessions are held at the farm every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 10am until 12noon. Each week is based on a nursery rhyme or story – see the list below for September.
The sessions are run by two experienced members of our education team, with all the bespoke activities/crafts made to encourage learning and personal development. Little Farmers is also a great chance for your little ones to socialize!
Your little ones will be set individual early learning goals to work towards, and have their development recorded over their time at Little Farmers. They will also receive certificates on completion of topics and goals!
Coming Up – December:
Week 5 (2nd,3rd,4th Dec): Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer
Week 6 (9th,10th,11th): Jingle Bells

EDUCATION BOXES

EDUCATION BOXES (COMING SOON)

For use with KS1 & KS2 classes our boxes are jam-packed with worksheets, touch and feel items and take-home paper games. All designed to help teachers bring a new way of learning to the classroom.

HOME EDUCATION

Our Home Education classes are coming back this September!

We are so pleased to be back with our Home Ed sessions, with the use of a new classroom facility to aid with social distancing, and exciting hands-on topics, it is going to be great to get learning again.

The Home Education Club is run by two members of our education team, each with experience with both key stage groups. We have made the decision to merge KS1 and KS2 into one group every Wednesday from 1pm – 3pm. All classroom work will be adapted to suit each key stage, with a member of staff assigned to a key stage each week to assist with breakaway groups.

The education team have developed the sessions to link in with the learning aims and objectives set out in the national curriculum. Each term we will put the topics on our website so you can see what they will be getting up to, and which sessions you would like to attend. This term will be linked to the sciences, art & design, and geography.

Each session the children will complete bespoke tasks, work sheets and activities based on their topic, and their learning will be recorded weekly. You do not have to attend every session, so if you want to pop along for a few sessions a term please do!
